Food and Fun for a Great Cause
As members of the press, the editors at KBB get invited to a host of industry events all over the U.S. – sometimes internationally. I recently attended an awesome event in a non-journalistic capacity. I was simply there to support my friend who helps make it happen and to learn more about the cause the event itself supports. The 5th-annual Harvest on the Hooch at the Chattahoochee Nature Center in Atlanta celebrated farm to table food with a garden party tasting event presented by Whole Foods and hosted by top local chefs and top-notch restaurants.
But the most important thing is that it is a fundraiser for the Unity Garden, which supplies more than four tons of fresh produce yearly to the North Fulton Community Charities food pantry.
I admit I had never been to the center before, nor had I visited the Unity Garden, so my boyfriend and I took advantage of everything the event had to offer: photo opps with life-sized carrots, tours of the garden, a gander at the mini alpacas and many chickens on the property and some really, really great food.
As you can see in the picture below, this event offered much more than mere samples – we dined on fried chicken drumsticks, Thanksgiving turkey and stuffing sandwiches and whole servings of pasta.
Aside from stuffing our faces, we actually learned a few things at the event. The Chattahoochee Nature Center’s mission is to connect people with nature, and it definitely did that for us on our visit.
